Consultant for Strengthening and Promotion of Honey Value Chains for the Communities in Eastern Plains Landscape (EPL)

Posted on 15 September 2020

in Eastern Plains Landscape (EPL)
Want to make a positive difference to improve the income generation of the local honey producing communities in the future. 
Wild honey is one of the most important NTFPs which may increase the incomes and employment of low-income people in and around forests while preserving the ecological sustainability of the resources. The supported honey groups have bought the honey from their groups’ members for selling to buyers; and they have also shared the net profit to their members, contributed for conservation and improved the groups’ business. For example, the honey groups have significantly increased their contribution, which is generated from their annual net profit, for conservation activities from USD 208 in 2017 to USD 443 in 2018 respectively.

What we do
We are an independent conservation organization, striving to sustain the natural world for the benefit of people and wildlife.

Together, we seek to protect and restore natural habitats, stop the mass extinction of wildlife, and make the way we produce and consume sustainable.
